Are there any special steps I should follow to avoid leaks when using cartridge-style Mobil 1 Extended Performance filters?
Simply follow these six essential steps for easy installation: • Use the proper cap tool to remove the oil cap. • Observe the positioning of the o-ring in the o-ring groove, then remove the old o-ring without damaging the plastic or metal cap. • Clean the cap and housing carefully. • Lubricate the new o-ring and cap seat completely with clean engine oil. • Install the new o-ring in the o-ring groove so it does not touch the cap’s threads. • Replace the cap and torque it with the correct tool to the recommended foot-pound spec.
